Finishing up my 3rd set of tongs. These are wide flat bit jaws for holding 1/2"-5/8" square stock. They work great! Very pleased with the business end but I want to get my reins a bit cleaner.  Also wanted to share my air valve for the charcoal forge. 2" pipe and electrical junction box. Cut half the lip off the door and use just 1 screw. Works very well

my wife was out antique shopping and found this anvil and sent me a text (half joking, who needs more than one anvil right ?)  $ 50 for a 52 # anvil.  A really good buy !   

originally it had a vice on one end, I have done a number of searches but have found little info on the anvil or the manufacture ?

Decided to switch it up. I like this setup way better than horizontal! Much more steel under the hammer, Small horn on the base and center web is a fuller.  Not sure what I'll do with the other side of the base just yet. I'll never use it horizontal again!

That was a vintage lathe chisel. I'm initiating myself on high-carbon salvage.

I saw something today that would be SO COOL!  Hinges made out of 2 horseshoes.  The ends of one horseshoe were curled back onto themselves and the ends of the other horseshoe were turned outward so they fit in the space created by the curled ends.  VERY cool looking!  I'll see if I can post a photo of them!

I found some stainless 3/8" rod today. Should make some great meat hooks. Found on old ax last weekend. May repurpose it
